Celebrating 25 years

  • Wednesday 26th June 2013

To kick off our 25th birthday celebrations we naturally put on an underwater birthday party in the world’s largest Great Barrier Reef exhibit!


The exclusive party was attended by a collection of aquarists and a flurry of aquatic guests including the Leopard Shark, Black Tip Reef Shark, Grey Reef Shark, Smalltooth Sawfish and schools of vibrantly coloured tropical fish.


And over the school holidays you’ll have the chance to walk down memory lane with historical photos and video on display or you can even purchase our special limited edition souvenir book.


Meet the Octonauts these holidays!


Kids can enjoy afternoon appearances by Captain Barnacles from the Octonauts (2pm-5pm daily) and discover plenty of other Octonauts themed activities including the chance to watch their all-time favourite episodes, enjoy an Octonauts activity corner and even an Octonauts pledge station to help save the world’s oceans.


And looking back over 25 years... 140,000 animals and almost 1,000 newly-born babies have called SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium home, 39 penguin chicks have been successfully raised, 20 weddings have taken place and millions of visitors have been educated by visiting us! And make sure you visit our four animals which have been at the attraction since day one including two lungfish and two Grey Nurse Sharks.
